Leavitt Group announced two important leadership appointments to guide the growing national insurance brokerage firm in the new year. Kevin P. Grady was appointed as chief legal officer and Brooke L. MacNaughtan was appointed chief people and community officer, a newly created role.

Eric O. Leavitt, chairman and CEO of Leavitt Group, said, “Leavitt Group is thrilled with the appointments of Kevin and Brooke. Kevin will oversee legal services, human resources, and risk management. Brooke’s new role emphasizes our focus on Leavitt Group’s culture and our desire to serve our employees across the country. We’re in capable hands as we continue to grow nationally.”

Prior to joining Leavitt Group, Kevin was vice president and deputy general counsel at Monat Global Corp and previously served as chief counsel at Mary Kay Inc., both international direct sales companies. A native of Cedar City, Utah, where Leavitt Group is headquartered, he’s a graduate of Brigham Young University and earned a law degree at William & Mary School of Law in Williamsburg, Virginia, where he graduated in the top 5% of his class.

“The future here is bright. Leavitt Group is a fast-growing, national brokerage, and I’m excited to support this expansion going forward,” Kevin said. “Within everyone I’ve met, there is a palpable kindness and sincerity. I’m grateful to be part of a great organization.”

Brooke has been with Leavitt Group for twenty years and has served as their vice president of Travel, Meetings, and Incentives most recently. This new role of chief people and community officer encompasses employee experience and travel, meetings, incentive trips, and recruiting of client service staff for Leavitt Group and our 100+ affiliate agencies.

Brooke expressed her gratitude about this appointment, “I’m grateful for the opportunity and feel the weight of wanting to bring my best effort in service of a company and people I love. We have built a culture and community that’s special, and it’s energizing to have the opportunity to focus more deeply on my favorite part of Leavitt Group, its people.”
